Instead of going out to breakfast this past weekend I decided spur of the moment to make these delish pancake breakfast bites.
In place of using of using a mix I made a whole wheat pancake batter from scratch. Which, to me at least, tastes so much better than any mix and it's SO easy! Added bonus to making your own batter: no preservatives.
Recipe from my Better Home & Gardens cookbook:
Spray the cupcake pan with Pam (I have one that has flour added, great for baking). Pour your batter into each section to about 3/4 full each.
|As you can see I tried a row with some frozen berries...they were a hit with the little one.|
Now add your precooked bacon, which you chopped into pieces...while taste testing of course, to the top of each pancake bite. Bake at 350 for 12-14 mins. Mine took about 16 mins...just saying. They will be golden on the top and dry in the middle. Enjoy!
I also used cupcake liners thinking it would be easy clean up but in reality the pancake stuck to it and it was a waste of pancake (a sin, I know!)....no wonder she didn't use them in the original recipe. lesson learned: no cupcake liners, just Pam.
These are a must for Christmas/New Years morning's to come...and any other excuse we can come up with.
Guess who's counting calories again?! Yep, this girl. 2 pancake bites are about 215 calories. Not too bad for bfast...but make sure you add syrup calories if you're counting too.
